The Serpentine and The White Review join for a third collaborative live event, featuring readings by Joanna Kavenna, Rebecca Tamás and Declan Ryan.
JOANNA KAVENNA grew up in various parts of Britain, and has also lived in the USA, France, Germany, Scandinavia and the Baltic States. Her first book THE ICE MUSEUM was about travelling in the remote North, among other things. Her second was a novel called INGLORIOUS, which won the Orange Award for New Writing. It was followed by a novel called THE BIRTH OF LOVE, longlisted for the Orange Prize. Her latest novel is a satire called COME TO THE EDGE. She was named as one of the Telegraph’s 20 ‘Writers under 40’ in 2010, and in 2013 was named as one of Granta’s Best of Young British Novelists. Her story BEETLE features in The White Review No. 14.

He has an MA in Creative Writing from Royal Holloway where he is currently teaching and working on a PhD on ‘perfect speech’ in the poems of Ian Hamilton.
